: house republicans say the law they authored and the president signed into law the day before the shutdown gave the pentagon the authority it needed to pay the death benefits. >> your responsibilities to achieve a political objective. the political objective was to make inflict as much harm you possibly could. you've compounded the problem by your conduct in how you've misinterpreted intentionally this law. >> i resent your remarks. let the record show that. i acted on the advice of attorneys and our best reading of a loosely worded law. let me finish. it was not a political judgment. >> the senate quickly moved to pass a new house bill to eliminate the confusion and pay death benefits during the shutdown. the act passed unanimously despite promises from harry reid not to consider peace meal spending bills: >> this whole thing is for show. this government shutdown is for show. >> the white house suggested the president may not sign it since fisher house is willing to foot the bill for now. >> the legislation is not necessary. our view has been that this peace meal funding is a

accept that? >> well, again, are they going to try to change existing law which is now where they are, or are they going to agree to leave the budget caps that have been long established as u.s. law, are they going to leave those in place and set a framework that allows us to deal with the big issues our nation faces which is mandatory spending. >> let me quickly explain to folks. what happened was, as part of the budget control act in 2011, sequester levels were set. these were automatic spending cuts. the budget has to -- overall budget has to go down to a certain level. the democrats are now insisting, let's raise the' questions center levels, let's relax that. one of the questions that i know some republicans are asking is, if obama care was the law of the land and couldn't be tinkered with, why is it the sequester which is just as much the law of the land can be tinkered with? >> i think republicans started in a place that was an over reach. to try to change a law that was central to the president's agenda was not something that was achievable, a delay maybe, other kinds of thing

in emergency powers. by which i've mean the congress is saying, here under law spend. here, under law don't pay your debts. right, those are conflicting demand. debts are due. that's a constitutional point. to your point and presidential point. the constitutional point as a practical matter for 401(k)s, markets may come second to the fact of the economic sabotage. the other point about congress here, congress is not static. the game john boehner is playing is dangerous. he raised the bar on what it means to oppose obama. we moved from a vote, debate. you have to obstruct and deep feet everything. i'm not sure whether debt ceiling votes are for him in the long run. >>. >> jimmy: reid, and arie. >> you are here for your wisdom and expertise, as always. also, because you just, you wouldn't return my e-maim. -- e-maim. i send you an e-mail that is two weeks old. and you have a big fan out there. a personal thing. you got a big fan out there. i want you'd to know about. >> i mram oblame outlook. >> joe russell. big joy reid favenn. everything i have to tell you i have to tell you on the air. you won

saying we should go along with this system just because it is the law? for almost 40 years by the supreme court it is the law. the ones it reversed? >> we don't think buckley needs to be reversed. to get where we are in this case we think these limits are unconstitutional under the current system because in this system they impose impermissible burden is on people's ability to contribute to a ten candidate instead of nine and to contribute to parties and tax instead independent expenditures. i don't think you need to change the entire system to hold these limits constitutional. they reveal their are questions about the system itself. >> if the aggregate limits are unconstitutional because they limit the number of people you can give to and the way you give them why not the actual contribution limits themselves? >> it is not about the base contribution limits. those of been justified on different grounds that have to do with the direct relationship between candidates and people giving contributions and when you are talking about average at limit you are not talking how much someone can con

at the president, but there's one thing conspicuously missing, any mention of the nation's health care law. this did not go unnoticed, especially by members of the right flank. ted cruz's communication adviser notices, there's one big word missing from this op-ed. much like white house press, paul ryan doesn't mention obama care in wall street journal op-ed. red state blogger and lead insurrectionist eric ericsson was livid. paul ryan wants a grand bargain and did not once mention obama care. he continues, the only path to victory in this shutdown is to keep our fire on obama care and our focus on the defunding effort. when even paul ryan, the tea party whisperer, can no longer please the right wing's right wing, it's clear the republican party has a serious problem on its hands. this debate has exposed a dep schism between the base that will only relent when obama care has been repealed and leadership that actually and very recently believed this. >> you had said next year that you would repeal the health care vote. that's still your mission? >> well, i think the election changes that. it

that wouldn't include defunding the president's health care law? >> reporter: not well, anderson. the tone could not be more different between what we heard on capitol hill today, notes of pragmatism versus here where the hard liners as you mentioned are totally against removing defunding obama care as a bargaining chip from the government shutdown negotiations. and if you need any proof of that, just look at who came here and who didn't come. we saw ted cruz, also senator mike lee two of the driving forces behind the defund obama care movement that led to the shut you can here today and plenty of conservative thought leaders, radio hosts, members of congress who said that defunding obama care must happen. and then look who didn't. you didn't see a lot of pragmatists from the capitol hill come over here, the john mccains, pete kings of new york. and paul ryan who sort of straddles the divide between the tea party and the establishment was supposed to speak here, anderson, but as you know he's sort of the architect of this new deal that's unfolding on capitol hill. he addressed the group by

on is a useful tool for all americans if they choose to use it. what i'm worried about not only the law enforcement component that individuaindividua ls who are surreptitiously following somebody triangulating somebody in following somebody either on their phone or other card for mobile device. you should be able to have their own privacy. i think americans have a reasonable expectation of privacy and should not have to give up all of those rights because they choose to use one of these mobile devices. the gps access in order to follow somebody in order to access their geolocation information you would have to have probable cause warrant. that would be true for law enforcement but also an individual. right now for an individual wanted to follow somebody in st. louis and they happen to be in phoenix they could do it. it's not against the law. you can go to radioshack and get a smart 17-year-old who can figure out how to do this. that seems wrong to us and should be against the law. >> host: supporters include the electronic sounds -- frontier foundation and the aclu. representative chaff
